And hence why I joined the "I'm sick of Melbourne Uni students who think the sun shines out their ass" group :angel:

Bullshit, "there's a lot of that."
I don't know about "a lot", but there definitely are quite a few.

e.g. the facebook group "Melbourne is better than Monash"


Quote
1. Melbourne attracts the best and brightest students from around Australia and the world.

3. Founded in 1853, Melbourne is Australia's 2nd oldest university. It encapsulates prestige and tradition.

4. Melbourne attracts the most intelligent students. It holds, on average, the brightest 10% of students entering from yr 12.

14. Monash has more students because Melbourne take only the smartest students.

21. Melbourne holds more tradition and pride in its university than Monash.

22. Students at Melbourne are more interactive and engaged with uni life than Monash students.

Can't get much snobbier and "I-think-I'm-top-shit-watch-out" than that.
LOL, i had hoped this superiority complex would cease after high school. I guess that's not the case. ):

It does... for the most part. See, on the forum the only example of someone caught up in a superiority complex about universities is someone who is still in high school (AppleXY)

i like how everyone is quoting my "smart arse shit from UoM who think they are all top shit" LOL!!!

ive open up a can of WORMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMS

but i find it simply true.
ofcourse employers want a work "efficient" person... but rushing things can get alot of things incorrect. better to get it done right then wrong as i see it.... this whole better uni thing... really isant the way to go in life.... its just out right degrading others... noone is better then another person because in the end we are all human beings!
we all are born and all end up dieing one day.

as u can see there are rankings in the world... but they really mean jackshit in the end. PERSONALLY...

question applexy: when u said "efficiently than effectively"... if u were an employer... would you want someone who got everything out in a day... but had bits missing or incorrect half the time? or someone who took their time to look over stuff and got it 100% right everytime and got the job done perfectly?

in the end i guess its like doing an english exam... once u read over it and take your time you find your errors easily and fix them up vs rushing rushing rushing... cram cram cram and in the end screw the whole thing up!
im not tryin to challenge you, im just tryin to make you see things in perspective.. coz i get the hint that you dont see VU being a "top of the range" school for people .... or have basically a lower academic standard.

ENTER does not determine how smart you are. so you can STFU now...thanks
also, PM ME if you have a problem. bring up a problem which CONCERNS ME only, not half of VN who also do the same action.

Try telling that to an employer who does not have the time to investigate each person thoroughly, and will make rational generalisations to make time-efficient decisions.

but you can generally tell if someone is talkin shit... or really does have the knowledge. it could just so happen you could go to UoM and totally bludge or go to VU and get GREAT grades and know the stuff inside out

I do agree that many employers, especially the busy ones, will simply see UoM and go, yep they're in, while they will see a VU qualification as being inferior.

I'm not saying it's right, I definitely don't agree with it, but unfortunately I think this is the case.

I think it's justified. People have better things to do than to investigate people fully (opportunity cost of time). I mean, if it's clear that the person is a bullshit artist, and the VU guy has more potential, and hence the employer favours the VU applicant, then that's also alright. Interviews are mainly an intuitive judgement process, and are just as judgemental as generalising based on the prestige of a university sometimes.

If these judgements are not effective ones, then that firm will simply fail to thrive and survive in the competitive marketplace, as they will be paying for duds, while the other firms are paying the same for better quality, due to a better judgement process, but it is unlikely that firms will jump to full investigations about their employees. They will resort to quicksnap intuitive judgements because of the lack of information available to them and the costs associated with obtaining the information.

It can be non-ideal, but I think generalisations are fine.

Employment prospects for Melbourne University graduates outstrip any other University in Victoria. Doesn't that tell us something? Employers do care, or simply the best applicants for jobs do go to Melbourne. (as in out of 100, the, the largest group would be represented by Melbourne Univeristy graduates, but obviously there will be lots of other applicants in that pool from other Unis)
